The Things That Don’t Go Your Way

I haven’t blogged for a couple of days. I’ve been praying and working on several projects . . . and this is where my mind has ended up.

The most creative an influential people in the world all have a passion for what they do. They are driven to succeed – or achieve their version of success. Their mind is focused, clear and resolute upon achieving their desired goal.

Most of the time, these folks are hard to be around . . . but not always. Most of the time they are type A personalities . . . but not always. They succeed . . . but not always.

So, how do you handle things that don’t go your way? Got passion, but it’s still not happening?

For the rest of us, who aren’t type A but are driven, what do we do when things don’t go as planned? What happens when frustration takes over your design for something? Is there a reboot somewhere? Do I redefine my definition of success? What if success isn’t easily defined in the first place?

Hmm . . .

I’ve been reading a lot lately that one should really focus your energy on things that are spiritually sound and that give you joy — letting that define success. I’m working on that. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes.

Sometimes . . . you have to have more than passion. What that is — the more — I’m hunting . . . and listening . . . and praying . . . and working on calm.

Nothing sinister here . . . just pondering . . . and worshipping the Holy each and every day.
